The picture I took was a piece of rope with a knot in it that was left on a dock that had been pulled out of the water for the winter. This picture was pretty close up so that I could show the details of the piece of rope rather than what was around it. I wanted it to be the main focus of the picture. The picture represents Rockland in the sense that it was taken there, but I was aiming to show more of a small coastal town theme rather than specifically Rockland.
I'd say that my shot came out with a sort of typical/nostalgic look depending on how you look at it. What I shot represented the coast of Maine, but it could also have represented a memory of when the knot had been tied, or a memory of the past summer season. I chose this object because in some ways it could be very straight forward, and in other ways it could bring on a deeper meaning.
